The Greater Hewitt Chamber was awarded first place in its category for its annual community guide and directory in the 2017 Texas Chamber of Commerce Executives Annual Media Contest. This is the second year in a row for the chamber to win first place for the directory.
“We are thrilled for our annual directory to receive this recognition,” said Alissa Cady, executive director of the Greater Hewitt Chamber. “Our volunteers and staff work hard to promote the greater Hewitt area throughout the year, and our directory is just one of several ways we strive to serve our business members and community.”
Chambers from across the state compete in the annual contest every June in a variety of media categories including brochures, maps, newsletters, websites, directories, marketing campaigns and social media campaigns. The contest has four size categories to ensure that organizations compete against comparably-sized chambers.
The greater Hewitt area has seen a tremendous amount of growth in recent years, and the Greater Hewitt Chamber’s marketing efforts reflect that growth.
“In addition to the directory, we also have a quarterly magazine called the Hewitt Express, and we’ve more than doubled our circulation per issue due to demand,” said Cady.
Digital versions of the Greater Hewitt Chamber publications can be found online at www.HewittChamber.com/Print, while print copies are distributed at restaurants, banks, clinics and hotels in the Hewitt and Woodway area, as well as at the Greater Hewitt Chamber office located at 101 Third Street in Hewitt.
The directory and quarterly magazines are also mailed directly to Greater Hewitt Chamber members and given to new residents moving into the Hewitt area. Readers throughout the state can find copies at visitor centers along the Interstate-35 corridor.
